Center for Hierarchical Materials Design (CHiMaD)
Partners: Northwestern University, University of Chicago, QuesTek Innovations LLC
Start Date: December 2013
The Center for Hierarchical Materials Design (CHiMaD) is focusing on developing the next generation of computational tools, databases and experimental techniques to enable the design of novel materials to establish a new center of excellence for advanced materials research. CMD Network is contributing to the development of a searchable 3-D microstructure database and will facilitate the distribution of modeling resources to selected universities to help prepare the future workforce for materials design.
